Island County Courthouse bids sought for security

Island County is accepting bids for security services at the Law and Justice Building in Coupeville through April 1.

Olympic Security Services has staffed the entry point screening at the building since 2001, but according to county code General Services must periodically request bids from other contractors.

Based on current staffing, the contract will cost Island County up to $52,000 for services in 2014. The security checkpoint is staffed 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday except holidays. Mondays and Wednesdays, the checkpoint has two screeners.

The request for proposals would be advertised in March, and bids would be accepted through the April 1 deadline for a contract beginning June 1.
